Re: PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You definitely have a RES. I was in Destin just last week and went to a place that had a tank full of them. They were so small and cute. This site may help you to know whether you have a boy or a girl, but I\'ve read that your turtle needs to be at least four inches before you can actually start to ...

Favorite Thing About Turtles

What is your favorite thing about your turtle...or turtles in general? What made you want to get a turtle? You can add pictures if you like. I would love to see any pictures you have of your turtles. I think one of my favorite things about turtles is their look of innocence. Crush is getting big, bu...

Re: What other pets do you have?

I have one RES (Crush), 2 dogs (Smokey and Katie), 1 cat (Simon), 7 bettas (Orion, Nemo, Charlotte, Lois, Nebula, Artemis, and Pisces), and 2 aquariums of fish...one with Cichlids and the other with a mixture of fish. I hope to get a tortoise one day...and I would love to have a cow!

Re: About YOUR Turtle

That\'s cool. I\'m glad someone else enjoys their turtle(s) as much as I do.

Re: pic

This is one of my FAVORITE pictures of Crush. She was trying to figure out what the camera was and it looks like she has her eyes crossed!

Re: pic

Here are a couple of pictures of my sweet baby girl, Crush. The first one was taken 3 days after I got her (January 20th). The other one was taken July 7th. She has REALLY changed. In fact, I measured her tonight and she\'s already 5 1/2 inches long! Not even a year old! She\'s gonna be a big girl! ...

Re: gravel??

I found that the best thing to do, at least for me, is not to use any type of gravel on the bottom of the tank. This makes it much easier to clean too, since food and waste can seep down into the rocks. Instead I just use large rocks that my turtle can climb on and get out on to bask. If you use big...

Re: Oily Film on Water

I was getting an oily film on the top of my turtle\'s water too. My mom bought me a Fluval 4+ filter for my birthday and I made it where the water being recycled through is pointing toward the surface of the water. This keeps the water moving throughout the aquarium. I haven\'t noticed any of the oi...

Re: About YOUR Turtle

I have one RES named Crush (also from Finding Nemo!) I let my brother name it. Now that I found out it\'s a girl, the name doesn\'t sound as good, but it\'s not bad either. She\'s such a sweetie. I bought her a kiddie pool and I go outside and sit or lie down in it with her while she swims around. S...

Re: pic

Not long after I got my RES, Crush, I took it out of the aquarium so that I could clean it and add more water. Well...I sat the turtle in the middle of the room (thinking it would take a long time to go any direction, and thinking about how it always just sat there for a while when I put it on the f...

Re: Cleaning the tank

I\'ll tell you the easiest way to use the siphon hose...at least for me. My mom taught me how to use it and it\'s a lifesaver! First, you need to hold your finger on the end of the long tube so that the water won\'t drain out all over the place. Next, put the large tube part at the top of the hose i...
